Do not confuse with ''The Big Bang"
An amusing episode of the popular 1950's British TV series. Amusing to see how gossip can be dangerous. Who knew that a tree branch could make one look like a Demon? Of course, Robin Hood knows this, and wonderfully shows why you can't always believe what you see. Meanwhile, one must love all the public gatherings used in this show to resolve the story quickly; It can feel like cheating at times, but this is a 24-26 minute minute show, and as such the pacing is faster and plotlines no need to be solved quickly. This is well-produced, well-written TV nevertheless.
Oh yeah, and a quick note: Back in the mid-1990's, I was watching a light childrens-show called "The Big Bang", and it turns out it is indeed possible to turn lead into gold. It is expensive and dangerous, and requires complex modern tech, though.
Please forgive any spelling and grammar mistakes, OK?
We are also shown the danger of a system of court as "pushy" as this...Of course, many places still have not overcome that!
Big thank you to the uploader (review edited minutes after submission)
